Hope Kelly says she spent at least two hours in her kitchen as more than a half-dozen Maine game wardens searched her Allagash home during a 2014 sting operation. She says the wardens removed 110 jars of her home-canned fruits and vegetables and 36 jars of moose meat. The meat was never proven to be illegally obtained, but all Kelly got back was 33 pints of the garden goods. A warden service evidence photo, upper right, shows some of the jars.
